Re: Can you 'quiet your mind'?

No, yes, yes, yes.

And I am even better with those things when I am medicated.

Because all things are possible with amphetamines.

OK, seriously now...yes, I can quiet my mind. But in those times I am not
quieting it, it runs free with a mix of word salad, music, and static. Very
not quiet, I must say.

Meds help with that...the word salad and static go away, and I am left with music.

Thatís quite OK with me.


Cheers,
Ian

Re: Can you 'quiet your mind'?

The simple point is that "quieting the mind" ain't that hard.
A thought comes up- and you go back to noticing the feeling on the back of the right middle finger.
You don't give the thought the acknowledgement that it is worth attending to-- and the thought realises is is unimportant, and it goes away.
(Apologies for the anthropormorphisms )

Re: Can you 'quiet your mind'?

Frankly this is a very interesting topic.
I know for a fact that a lot of the noise in my head is due to issues davefs described. I just cant shake the idea that i have trouble processing these issies because of constant internal distractions, no matter how much i try to focus on them. Maybe its a habit of lifelong emotional supression or its just an adhd mind.

I wonder what happened to davefs though, if he managed to stay off meds and relatively adhd symptom free.
